      Any viable candidate for Senate in New York would vote the same way on any of those issues.  Given how Democratic New York is, so would a viable Republican candidate.

      I for one would happily trade things going the other way on any or all of those in order to create credible electoral consequences for corruption.  So I would more than happily support a primary challenger to her and Schumer even if that meant a Republican (shudder) won because getting rid of corrupting effect of money is that  important.

      To be elected to the Senate is an enormous privilege.  It's not enough to robo-vote the party line on issues where the opinions of your party and constituency are heavily skewed in the same direction.  I want a lot more.  As a start, I want someone who isn't corrupt.  That's not all I want but it's a start.

      So ya DAMMIT - GET RID OF THE CORRUPT BASTARDS.
